Film Exchange Overview
Film Exchange Options
Our Film Exchange feature offers instant, online film exchange for your conference, league or association. Whether you are part of a youth league, high school or collegiate conference or a large adult amateur league; we can set up a film exchange system to meet your needs. Eliminate the time and expense of dealing with DVDs, couriers, travel or other expensive online exchange services to exchange your film with other coaches by trading film online with WatchGameFilm. We offer four unique types of Film Exchange:
- League Locker
League Locker is the perfect solution for league teams that need to trade film after every game in the season. The League Locker is designed for proper league management of film and provides teams with access to all league games. League Administrators are able to manage the Locker as well as block league teams from the Locker if they are not complying to League Exchange rules. The League Locker is the best way to manage and exchange film between teams. Please contact us if you would like to set up a League Locker on WatchGameFilm.com in order to exchange film.
- League Exchange
League Exchange is designed for teams who are in leagues that do NOT share all of their league film with each other. This may include leagues that have specific exchange rules such as trade the previous game with your upcoming opponent as well as leagues that have no exchange rules and the coaches trade film with each other on an as-needed basis. The League Exchange feature allows two teams within the league to directly trade film with each other without giving all of the other league teams access to the traded film. Please contact us if you would like to set up a League Exchange on WatchGameFilm.com in order to exchange film.
- Team Exchange
Team Exchange is designed for teams who want to trade film but are NOT in the same league. Both teams that want to trade film must have an Active or Trial WatchGameFilm.com Account. Coaches are able to search for a team by typing in the email address of the coach they want to trade film with. A list of WatchGameFilm.com teams appear that the receiving coach is part of. The sending coach selects the appropriate receiving coach's team and then instantly trades film with them.
- Open Exchange
The Open Exchange feature is designed for a WatchGameFilm.com team to trade with a team that is not using WatchGameFilm.com. This is useful if a coach is using another film system or no system at all. We see many teams use Open Exchange when they get to the playoffs and are trading film with teams they normally do not know. Open Exchange allows a coach to give another coach access to a film without requiring that coach to log on or use WatchGameFilm.com. At the same time, Open Exchange allows a coach to give another coach access to upload their film to his or her team so that they can properly receive game film from the coach who is outside of WatchGameFilm.com.
